Simona moved to the UK from Italy in 2009. She holds a Diploma in Business and International Studies, however, after taking cello lessons in her hometown she realised that her true calling was pursuing a career in music.
Once in England she worked in a pub for a few years, joined a folk band and immersed herself in the local music scene, collaborating with musicians and singer-songwriters and performing with orchestras in a wide variety of festivals across the country.
In 2014 she received a Scholarship to purchase a new musical instrument and enrolled to study a BA in Music Performance in one of the country's leading conservatoires, which she will finish next year. After completing her studies, Simona would like to carry on working in the music industry, either in a performing or teaching role.
